Italian Online Gambling Operators To Be Included In Privacy Enquiry

Italian data protection regulator announces compliance investigation

The Italian data privacy protection regulator has announced that online gambling operators will be included in its enquiry this year to ensure that companies comply with the relevant legislation, according to a report in the publication Gaming Techlaw.
Every six months the regulator selects a specific sector to be investigated as part of its compliance campaign, often using complaints from the public as a guide when making its selection.
Gaming Techlaw reports that the Italian privacy authorities are among the most diligent and active in the European Union, and recently hit Google with a Euro 1 million fine regarding a privacy breach that occurred through the Street View service.
"The timing of such investigation could not be better since operators might take this opportunity to start working on measures to be adopted in view of the upcoming EU Privacy Regulation that will considerably increase the applicable fines," Gaming Techlaw observes.

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
